This blog follows how a romance novel set in the Borders of medieval Scotland is researched, written and hopefully *hopefully* published.

Join me on the writing journey and get inspired to try writing a little romance into your own life!

Poll

Have you taken the poll partway down this page that wonders about which cities intrigue you? Do it! :-)

Voted, but two comments: New Amsterdam was a Dutch colony in North America, now known as New York; it wasn't clear if your poll meant this colony, or Amsterdam in Holland. Also, no Prague? How sad. Then I would have had a very hard time making up my mind.

Aaack! You are absolutely correct, New Amsterdam did become what we so commonly know in the "modern world" as New York. I was thinking about Amsterdam, lovely, OLD, Amsterdam ;-). Rembrandt van Rijn, etc. :-)

Ah, the old SS teacher slipped up. That's what I get for a concentration in Eastern European History... Nope, no excuse from my much more diverse education. :-)

But, if that's the worst mistake I make... ;-) Well that's what happens with too little sleep and a 3+ year old gnawing on your knee (we're well past ankle-biter status around here :-). Thanks for stopping in and pointing out my mistake! :p

Nope, no Prague. A lot of cities got left out (including ones I've written about or thought about writing about) because there are A LOT of fascinating cities and I have but A LITTLE time. :-)

Take care!
